Where should I drop off and pick up my student? 
There are several drop off locations.  The closest one is right in front of the Academy on Long Beach Blvd.  Cars are not allowed to park in drop off zone so drivers should stay in their cars, and students should exit on the sidewalk side only.  There is parking options a bit further down the block.

You can also do drop off, and pick up, one-half block further down on Long Beach Blvd. in front of Poly's PAALs campus.  You can park here too, except on Tuesday mornings when it is street sweeping.  You can also drop off and pick up on 16th Street.

Public transportation is encouraged.
